A Review of Broken Sword 3: The Sleeping Dragon

Broken Sword 3Broken Sword 3Revolution's third entry in its popular Broken Sword series, The Sleeping Dragon, released in 2003, is one of the best graphical adventure games I've played to date. The game manages to combine charismatic characters, dramatic action sequences, clever puzzles, and an intuitive interface--all into a lengthy and thoroughly engrossing game. Although I wasn't as impressed with the first Broken Sword game, I'm pleased to say that the third game is a must-have for fans of the graphic adventure.

Broken Sword: Circle of Boredom

Broken Sword: Don't look down!Broken Sword: Don't look down!Although there were certainly aspects of Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars that I admired, and others that I enjoyed, I have to admit I found playing through this title an exercise in tedium. The key problem is poor pacing (snail race, anyone?), which amounts to a collosal amount of dialogue to sit through, a somewhat clumsy narrative technique, and what feels like hours spent watching the avatar slowly plod and backtrack across the screen. Compared to similar games like The Dig and Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, Broken Sword just doesn't make the cut.
